REXY ON THE LOOSE

In the prologue of Jurassic World: Dominion, we watched as Rexy is chased by a helicopter before rampaging through a drive-thru movie theater. I noticed something different about Rexy’s behavior in this scene. She was not hunting or fighting or being territorial like she usually is. Instead, Rexy was scared and confused, which is normal when a wild animal ventures into an unfamiliar environment. She was born and raised in the laboratories of Isla Sorna and spent the majority of her life in the jungles of Isla Nublar. When she was released onto the mainland, she was seeing all of this for the first time in her life. She was being exposed to sights, sounds, and smells she never experienced before. It must be beyond overwhelming for her. We have gotten used to seeing Rexy as the powerful and regal Queen of the Dinosaurs, but here she is lost, alone, and trying to figure out her new place in the modern world.
